In her own words”

My name is Kate Werner. Inspired by artists in YouTube videos and social media, I began doing makeup art about two years ago. And around a year ago, I started uploading my makeup creations onto my Instagram account, BeautyGoneBad. Until this point, I never really found a passion or something to keep me busy. I didn’t fit in with sports or clubs, but I found art was something I was interested in. I liked drawing and painting, but it took a while for me to discover body art.

Creative makeup Art took my favorite things, makeup, and painting, and put them together. It’s like having an entirely reusable canvas, and you can turn yourself into anything or anyone you want. That’s why I like to call myself a “makeup shapeshifter.” Depending on the makeup, or how motivated I feel, makeup can take from an hour to 10 hours. It’s kind of a whole day to deal. I usually start around noon and finish at night. It doesn’t bother me to spend all day doing something I love, though. I love doing makeup so much that I hope to one day do it as a career! It took a while for my parents to realize how serious I was about it, and we’ve already started exploring school options.

I’m currently in high school, and I’m involved in the theater department at my school, doing things with makeup crew and backstage stuff. It’s made me realize how important makeup is for productions in theater and film, and that’s what I hope to do. I want to do makeup for movies and TV and create characters. Makeup has changed my life for the better, and I hope it continues to do so for as long as it can.

After a firemen lived for 15 years without a face, a deceased 26-year-old bicyclist gave him his lif

Patrick Hardison was working as a volunteer firefighter in his hometown of Senatobia, 40 miles south of Memphis when he got a desperate call. A house was in flames, with a woman trapped inside. Hardison arrived on the scene and raced inside, minutes prior to the roof all of a sudden collapsed. His helmet was knocked off, and he felt his mask melting. He closed his eyes and leaped out the window.

Hardison lost his eyelids, ears, lips and the majority of his nose, along with his hair, due to the fact that of that fire. He also had injuring third-degree burns throughout his whole face, head, neck and upper torso. His skin was so terribly harmed that he was not even able to close his eyes.

From that day on, Sept. 5, 2001, there was no healthy tissue left throughout his face.

Firefighter Patrick Hardison before and after

In an interview on Monday, the medical center revealed that Hardison, now 41 and a daddy of 5, had actually gone through the world’s most comprehensive face transplant to this day. The donor was a young BMX bicyclist from Ohio called David Rodebaugh, whose family donated his liver, kidneys, and both eyes to assist other patients. An agent from LiveOnNY, which works to match donors with receivers in the New York City said David mother didn’t hesitate when asked about the face transplant and called her son “a free spirit who loved life.” A face transplant is not covered under the same consent when you designate yourself on your driver’s license. The family needs to be contacted regardless of at least attempt to get a Donor Risk Assessment Interview (DRAI). This is a unique circumstance that we would ask the family for. They can end up waiting for quite a long time to find a match, because unlike typical organ donation, they need to match a donor’s skin tone and hair color, too, and the serology matching is even more limited than regular organ transplant (must be CMV negative). But face transplants are in the same category as hand, arm, and penile transplants. It’s something called Vascular Composite Allograft, or VCA transplant. It’s become a huge thing in recent years. It’s a tissue transplant, but an organ procedure because of the blood flow required. The face transplant program in the U.S. is funded by the DoD.

Firefighter Patrick Hardison and his face donor David Rodebaugh

Rodebaugh passed away in July when he crashed with UPS guy and struck his head while he pedaled his bike against traffic on one-way DeKalb Avenue in Brooklyn on July 2015. He was 26 — essentially the very same age as Hardison was when he was burned 15 years ago.

Firefighter Patrick Hardison and his face donor David Rodebaugh

The years following that mishap had lots of dark times for the young Mississippi firemen.

He went through more than 70 surgical treatments that included numerous grafts from his leg to his face. However, he was still actually disfigured– with “no semblance of normal anatomy,” and needed to conceal behind sunglasses and a baseball cap whenever he headed out. Talking or eating triggered significant pain.

A good friend at Hardison’s church became aware of the work Rodriguez had actually done at the University of Maryland Medical Center for another man whose face had been damaged and gotten in touch the surgeon on his behalf. Hardison ended up being a patient of Rodriguez’s while the doctor was at UMMC and continued to work with him after he was recruited to join NYU Langone.

The transplant operation, which happened Aug. 14, was moneyed by a grant from NYU Langone. The medical facility approximates it cost in between $850,000 and $1 million.

In the 26-hour surgical treatment, Rodriguez and a group of more than 100 medical professionals, nurses, and technical assistants had the ability to provide Hardison a new face. Unlike previous face transplants, which included delicately sewing parts of another individual’s skin, lips, bones, muscles, and capillary onto a client, this one needed a detailed graft of both the front and back of the head that was referred to as a type of “hood.” It consisted of the scalp, ears and ear canals, parts of the bone from the chin and cheeks, and a whole nose. Surgeons were likewise able to change Hardison’s eyelids, consisting of the muscles that manage to blink. Nerves regrow, just mega slow. Like, 1-5mm a day depending on the nerve.

The team operated in 2 groups, in 2 adjacent operating spaces. One was accountable for acquiring the face from the donor together with other organs which were to assist other patients and the second Hardison.

Surgeons stated encouraging indications appeared even as he was still in surgical treatment: “Patrick’s brand-new face, especially his new lips and ears, were robust with color, showing flow had actually been brought back.” Quickly the hair on his scalp and face started growing back. Within a week, he had the ability to stay up in a chair.

The hospital stated that just 3 months after the surgery — a critical period when most rejections take place — Hardison is “doing well and is quickly returning to his daily routines.”

“I am profoundly grateful to my donor and his family,” Hardison said in a statement. “Even though I did not know who they would be, I prayed for them every day, knowing the difficult decision they would have to make to help me. I hope they see in me the goodness of their decision.”

Rodriguez stated that “when I met Patrick and heard his story, I knew that I had to do all I could to help him.” He stated among the most moving minutes for him was when Hardison headed out to Macy’s in New York after his surgery to purchase clothing “For him, it was so remarkable that no one stared at him. … It was a very emotional exchange for us,” Rodriguez said.

The medical science behind transplants has actually been advancing at a quick pace in the last few years. Patients have actually seen incredible outcomes with womb transplants, penis transplants, and hand transplants along with tongue transplants.

The world’s first partial face transplant was performed in 2005 in France on a woman who lost her lips, cheeks, chin and most of her nose after she was mauled by her dog. The very first complete face transplant took place in 2010 in Spain. The procedures triggered a firestorm of ethical argument about whether such risky surgeries should be undertaken to improve someone’s quality of life — rather than save it.

In 2012, the University of Maryland Medical Center revealed that it had actually finished exactly what was then the most thorough face transplant on 37-year-old Richard Lee Norris, who had actually been damaged in a weapon mishap 15 years previously. The 36-hour operation included more than 150 physicians, nurses, and staff members.

Everything from the scalp to the midline of my neck was replaced, including the jaw bones, teeth, part of my tongue, muscles, and nerves,” stated Norris, who has retained his eyesight through the gun accident and the subsequent surgical treatments. The days immediately following the transplant were promising. Norris was taken off his postoperative ventilator, and within the very first week, he had the ability to shave his face and brush his teeth. When Norris saw his new face in a mirror for the first time, he wrote, “the only thing I could do was hug Dr. Rodriguez.

In overall, approximately 35 clients worldwide have actually had face transplants. The risk of complications, even death, are really high. Even if the preliminary surgical treatment, which is immensely complicated and unsafe, works out, face transplant patients — like those getting donor organs like a heart or kidney — deal with the considerable risk that their body will turn down the foreign part. As an outcome, lots of physicians think these clients will need to take immunosuppressant drugs their entire lives.

These recipients have to be on anti-rejection medication for their entire lives, just like if they received a regular organ transplant. They do regain feeling and nerve function, but it takes some time. They often need supplemental surgeries, but very minor compared to what they’ve had to go through before!

The Story Behind Shark Finning Is Pretty Frightful

Shark selfie

What is shark finning and why should we be concerned?

Why is shark fin soup so popular?

Is shark fin soup illegal in the United States?

Among the driving forces of shark finning has actually been the historical significance of shark fin soup in China. In the past, Chinese Emperors preferred the soup as a meal since it was believed to have medical advantages and represented a triumph versus powerful sharks. This appeal has actually not faded with time and has actually even broadened with China’s growing population. Today shark fin soup is still common and has actually ended up being a staple for more than merely Emperors on unique events. As an outcome, fishermen have a considerable reward to collect and offer shark fins.

Attacking sharkShark finning is a phenomenon that results in the deaths of numerous sharks each year and threatens ocean environments.

The practice of shark finning includes fisherman capturing numerous shark types, cutting off their dorsal fin, and disposing the carcasses back into the water to die.

Since shark fins are much more important than other parts of the shark, fisherman consistently disposes the less valuable shark carcasses back into the ocean to conserve space on their boats for the better product.

How many sharks are killed a year for shark fin soup?

Sharks finless on the bottom

In general, scientists think that people eliminate more than 100 million sharks each year, which threatens the species and threatens to imbalance the ocean’s environments because sharks play a considerable role in them.

How much is a pound of shark meat?

It will cost nations money to keep an eye on the worldwide sell shark fins. However remember that fins are a high-end item that fetches exorbitant prices. We saw one set of big excellent hammerhead fins on sale in Bangkok that was marketed for USD$ 1,100 per kg (about $500 per pound). Shark fin soup was costing $365 a bowl at a neighboring dining establishment. There is cash in this trade that might and need to be rerouted to guaranteeing compliance with the brand-new global law and promoting sustainability.

Nevertheless, there is some excellent news. A federal government thriftiness drive and public awareness projects in China had actually caused a 70 percent reduction in fin soup intake by 2014.

Rates of shark fin are falling in China by 50 percent-70 percent, and sales have actually reduced by 82 percent according to a new report launched recently by WildAid. “Evidence of Declines in Shark Fin Demand, China” puts together popular opinion studies, studies of shark discover suppliers and traders in the markets of Guangzhou, China (the present center of China’s shark fin trade) and research studies of shark fin rate information from Indonesian shark fisherman, to trade stats and media reports.

Drying shark fins

The report likewise discovered increasing public awareness with 85 percent of Chinese customers surveyed online stating that they had actually quit shark fin soup within the last three years. Two-thirds of these participants pointed out awareness projects as a factor for ending their shark fin intake, while the 2nd and 3rd most popular factor were provided were that they “wish to secure sharks” which it is “terrible the method they eliminate sharks”– crucial messages of WildAid’s continuous public awareness project.

Comparable actions have actually followed in the United States Legislation that would prohibit the trade of shark fins in the nation was presented in June 2016. Despite the fact that shark finning is prohibited in U.S. waters, shark fins are regularly purchased and offered in the nation. The bill would make that prohibited.

According to the brand-new report, an across the country restriction on the trade of shark fins would minimize the worldwide fin trade, enhance enforcement of the existing finning restriction, and send out a message to other nations that the United States acknowledges shark finning as a cruel process that should not be allowed to continue.

Sharks fins schema

“Shark finning is vicious and inefficient, and it’s putting some shark types at the threat of termination. The United States appropriately chose to prohibit the trade of ivory and rhino horns– yet we still import shark fins, which can be the outcome of a similarly harsh practice,” stated Lora Snyder, project director at Oceana. “To secure sharks, we have to end the need for shark fins. Today, the United States took an essential action to accomplishing this. We praise the leadership of the bill’ advocates today in assisting to end the shark fin trade the United States.”

Oceana also released a new report today showing why Congress has to pass a federal restriction on the trading of shark fin items. The need for shark fins is among the best dangers dealing with shark populations around the globe. In truth, fins from as many as 73 million sharks end up in the international market every year.

Can you imagine driving the very same Rolls-Royce for 82 years?

1928 Rolls-Royce Piccadilly-P1 RoadsterWhen Swift passed away at the age of 102 in October of 2005, it was his desire that somebody take control of the tradition of this vintage car and keep it in running condition. This took some preparation and thanks to the efforts of a network of antique automobile collectors Swift and the Springfield Museum company started negotiations in 2002 to return the Rolls to the city where it was developed. In the 1920’s the British-based Roll-Royce business had a plant in Springfield, MA where 2,944 cars were produced.

2 months prior to his death, Swift contributed $1,000,000 to the Springfield Museums to acquire the Verizon Building in Springfield so that it might be redesigned into a brand-new history museum for the neighborhood. The museum opened in 2006 and happily shows Swift’s Rolls Royce together with a collection of other automobiles and Indian bikes.

In 1994 Swift was presented a crystal Spirit of Ecstasy award by Rolls-Royce Motors for holding the record of the longest ownership of among their cars.

Can you imagine even having the very same automobile for 82 years?

1928 Rolls-Royce Piccadilly-P1 RoadsterHe drove it up till his death in 2014 … At the age of 102!!!

He was the earliest living owner of an automobile that was bought brand-new. Simply believed you ‘d like to see it. It was contributed to a Springfield museum after his death.

Mr. Allen Swift (Springfield, MA) got this 1928 Rolls-Royce Piccadilly-P1 Roadster from his dad, brand name brand-new– as a graduation present in 1928.

It has 1,070,000 miles on it, still runs like a Swiss watch, dead quiet at any speed and remains in best cosmetic condition. (82 years). That’s roughly 13,048 miles annually (1087 monthly)…

1,070,000 that’s miles, not kilometers !!

That’s British engineering of a bygone age. I do not believe they make them like this any more.

However, very soon, Mecca will have another attraction – the largest hotel in the world – Abraj Kudai which is under construction only 1.7 kilometers from the Grand Mosque in Mecca and is expected to be completed in 2017. Where Islamic pilgrims, going to Mecca annually, can have an excellent accommodation and rest.

10 of the towers Abraj Kudai will provide four-star accommodations

The city is located 70 km (43 mi) inland from Jeddah in a narrow valley at a height of 277 m (909 ft) above sea level. Its resident population in 2012 was roughly 2 million, although visitors more than triple this number every year during the hajj (“pilgrimage”) period held in the twelfth Muslim lunar month of Dhu al-Hijjah.

Abraj Kudai in Mecca is the largest hotel in the world consisting of a ring of 12 towers

Конечно, это прекрасно, что никто из нормальных людей не встает на защиту женского обрезания, оправдывая это традицией или необходимостью бороться с женской распущенностью – наши деды обрезали, наши отцы обрезали и мы будет обрезать женщин. Это наша духовная скрепа.

Но и мужское обрезание – такое же варварство и религиозная глупость. И от того, что вредных последствий у него меньше, эта глупость не перестает быть глупостью. И не надо ссылаться на традицию и на миллионы обрезанных евреев, арабов и американцев. Есть очень простое универсальное правило – права ребенка находятся выше религиозной традиции. Вы не можете взять и у крошечного существа отрезать кусок кожи, потому что так написано в ваших Священных Книгах или потому, что некоторые доктора говорят о том, что это очень полезная процедура.
Когда ребенок станет совершеннолетним, тогда он сам сможет распоряжаться своей плотью – делать татуировки, шрамирование, обрезание.

И, вне всяких сомнений, развитие общества приведет к полному запрету обрезания детей и к уголовному преследованию как врачей, так и родителей приносящих своих детей на обрезание. А евреи и арабы могут свернуть в трубочку свои Святые Книги и засунуть их себе в портмоне.

“I’ll eat you last…”

The Jungle Warfare Training Centre – Centro de Instrução de Guerra na Selva (CIGS), also known as the Colonel Jorge Teixeira Centre, is a military organisation based in Manaus, intended to qualify military leaders of small groups, as wilderness warriors, fighters able to accomplish military nature missions in the most inhospitable areas of the Brazilian rainforest.

Courses are taught in jungle operations scenery in different categories – Senior Officers, Officers, Senior Non-Commissioned Officers, Non-Commissioned Officers, Medical and Health Care Personnel, and small courses for the military, police forces and civilians. Its symbol is the jaguar.

These are mostly rescued orphaned cubs that can’t be sent back to the forest. The army keeps them at a military zoo.

“I’ll not eat at all…”

When soldiers of the Brazilian army found a little jaguar in the jungle of Amazon, he was hardly alive. It could not be left in the jungle — it meant certain death from hands of hunters. It was taken with them, but even it was clear after a while that the kitten is too weak to release him. Local authorities allowed leaving the kitty under the supervision of the Brazilian army. And here now the jaguar who was named Jiquitaia is healthy and surrounded with the care of people who rescued him from death.

Loans for Students Can Bankrupt America?

One of the biggest problems plaguing the youth of our nation is loans for students

America is one of the greatest countries in the world. It is also one with serious problems. One of the biggest problems plaguing the youth of our nation is loans for students. This is one of the most pressing issues of our time, and if not kept in check, America will run the risk of going bankrupt. As we all know, bankruptcy is never good and is especially bad for a country to go bankrupt. For those who want to know more about our student loan crisis, here are a few reasons why they can bankrupt America.

Nearly 20 million Americans attend college each year. Of that 20 million, close to 12 million – or 60% – borrow annually to help cover costs.

As we all know, the American Higher Education System is amongst the best in the world; people come from far and wide to study here. They do this because they know that they will get an education that can use back home. One thing is for sure, though. International Students don’t really take out student loans. Only American students do this. One of the significant problems with the student loan system is that bankruptcy does not erase the credit. A student loan can only be cleared for a really limited number of reasons. Surprisingly, death will wipe out a student loan, but who wants to go, right? With that being said another biggest problem with the loans for students is the design of the program itself.

An unusual provision in the law prohibits student loans from being discharged through bankruptcy.

When the student loans were first created, many people went to local, public colleges. Nowadays, many of my friends went to private colleges. Some of the private colleges are as good or better than public ones. Others are considered to be less prestigious. What the private colleges all have in common is that they all are much more expensive than a good public college. Part of their prestige is based on their cost, and since they are all competing for students, the price of the education will go up, and the people who will suffer are you, the students. Another big problem with the system is not with the loans for students system per say, but with the greater economic system. I’m sure you have already guessed it, but it’s the unemployment among young college graduates. It’s not a very good number to see.

When our parents graduated from college, they were almost guaranteed to get a really good job at a great salary. Nowadays this isn’t the case for most graduates. Many people dream of working at Google, or Intel. These are great places to work at, the salaries are really high, the benefits are great, and the work is, for the most part, fascinating. There are many people who spend their whole, entire careers working at companies like Google, to be honest, who would want to leave. The problem is that these companies only take the best students from the best schools. If you went to a place like Queens College, or Boston College, you would have a much tougher time getting noticed in comparison to the many Harvard, Yale, and MIT graduates who are applying for the same jobs as you are. This puts you at a huge disadvantage; even though there is no doubt that you can do the work just as well if not better. Sadly life isn’t fair. The problem is that if you don’t get a good job, you are going to have a tough time paying your loans off and since many people are having these problems; America is running a huge risk of going bankrupt. It is not a good situation, and it will probably not end well.

In Conclusion, America is undergoing a serious student loan crisis, one that if it is not handled now, it will cause America to go bankrupt.

Terrorists "Boko Haram" showed what they are doing with the abducted schoolgirls

Terrorists &quot;Boko Haram&quot; showed what they are doing with the abducted schoolgirlsTerrorist group “Boko Haram” published a video as the first proof in which, they showed alive hostages schoolgirls, kidnapped two years ago in Nigeria, Africa.

Not all schoolgirls are not present in the video. Their faces bleak, the group of a few dozen girls could be seen wearing long Islamic gowns, guarded by a masked man in camouflage. Some fought back tears. Many held babies, likely the product of rape after the girls were forcibly married to fighters or being sex slaves. About 40 of the girls have been married off, the masked man said. The militants claimed that the other girls were killed in the Nigerian government air strikes. The Nigerian air force has been bombing Boko Haram’s stronghold in the Sambisa forest, in the northeast, near the Cameroonian border.

To remind us all, in April 2014 the militants of the radical Islamist group “Boko Haram” kidnapped more than 270 schoolgirls in Chibok in the state of Borno in northeastern Nigeria. The leader of Islamic group offered to exchange girls with all the arrested militants, but the government refused. Of the 276 kidnapped girls 57 got somehow free, 219, until recently, were missing.

The radical Islamist group “Boko Haram” (“Western education – sin” is a translation from the Hausa language) aims to create Islamic Caliphate on the north-east of Nigeria and to introduce rules of Sharia (Islamic law). Militants of this group rampant in Nigeria and are the majority of terrorist attacks regularly committed in response directed against its military campaign, which is conducted by Niger, Cameroon, and Chad. Their victims were already an enormous number of civilians, abducted over five hundred young children in one of the cities in the country.

The Nigerian government, then under former President Goodluck Jonathan, was harshly criticized for failing to act swiftly to locate and recover the schoolgirls.
